Every Monday we will share three new memes about speech therapy. Speech Humor is the best!
About 2 years ago, I was treating a sweet, elderly patient in my skilled nursing facility who came to me with aspiration pneumonia and a recommended liquid consistency of honey thick. She worked so hard, mastering the use of chin tuck against resistance exercise (CTAR) and base of tongue (BOT) elevation exercises; both in AND outside of therapy sessions. Together, we managed to improve her swallow function to safely tolerate limited flow of thin liquids. Yay, right?! Well, yes and no… I quickly realized how inaccessibly expensive materials deemed “therapeutic” or “rehabilitative” can be.
